Words - An evening with Lucy Brett, British Board of Film Classification

Sun 11 Sep 2016 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Artrix, Slideslow Drive, Bromsgrove, B60 1PQ

Lucy Brett joined the BBFC as an Examiner in 2004 and became Education Officer in 2010, before being appointed Head of Education in 2012. Prior to joining the BBFC, she was a journalist for trade and consumer home entertainment magazines including Timecode, Total DVD and Home Entertainment Week and was also a media studies teacher.

As Head of Education she represent the BBFC at events like the Hay Literary Festival, the Cinemagic young people’s film festival in Belfast and the Cambridgeshire Young People’s Film Festival. These events, in addition to the BBFC's own education events, offer an extremely effective litmus test as to how younger people respond to film ratings, and what issues are important to them. Issues they regularly discuss include racist language in films and the need to protect children from potentially harmful material.
